NuMaps North America 2010.50 Release Date

 

My free download period is soon to expire. With my luck, it will come out as soon as I download the old maps. If anyone knows the date, or as soon as it's released, please post here. Thanks!

Looking at this discussion, http://www.poi-factory.com/node/27390, it looks like the 2010.40 maps were released on or around 01/21/2010.

I think Garmin will release the new map the end of May.

I have been checking my

I have been checking my Garmin map account thinking or hopefully wishing that the 2010.50 would be released the first few days in April but as you well know, no such update so far..

2010.4 release date

This is what is in MyGarmin on the release date (Jan10)

Hopefully the 2010 or 2011.1 will be out SOON!

City Navigator North America NT 2010.40, US & Canada, Jan 10

Lots of new and changed roads in my area

So I am really hoping for an update that includes them.

Soon

The newest update is not officially released....
Until Dorkus Nimrod says it is released!

Check back here often, Dorkus is always on top of things. New firmware and maps are released and you'll read about it here, usually within hours of the release. Maybe he works at Garmin, or has a relative/friend work there.

Navteq

You can go and see if the database supplier has updated the information by checking the Navteq site and the Beta map.

If it is there be warned that it might not show up in the Garmin map release.

laugh out loud I think DN is far too critical of Garmin's firmware failures to be accused of working for them.

May 3rd

Thats the date for me to get my free upgrade for my garmin. I hope they hurry and release it soon. Guess i will just have to keep a close eye on the Factory. It seems to happen here before anywhere else.

If you keep a check on My Garmin under manage maps https://my.garmin.com/mygarmin/customers/myGarminHome.faces it will show the update when released.Now that the date is getting close I check it often.

the life of me, I can see no reason for being so anxious for the new map versions to be out. I have dowloaded each one on 4 Garmins. Not only is it very time consuming, but how on earth am I certain the only change that had been made on the new version was only a new street address in East Overshoe MA? I suppose there is the self satisfaction of knowing you have the Most up-to-date version on the street!

Am I alone in this, or are there others that feel as I do?

"Backward, turn backward, oh time in your flight, make me a child again, just for tonight."

Why new maps? I for one

am waiting for the complex I live in and several new ones in my area (Taylor, MI) to be added. I can now see the roads on Google Maps, and take a street level tour, and even get close (the closest US Hwy) when I put in my address, but no luck yet on getting the roads named. And YES, I have spoken with Navteq and given them the info... several abandoned complexes around me are fully integrated, so it's frustrating, and also it's impossible to get things delivered without a hassle, especially Pizza...So there are other things affected other than just the Garmin.

765T

I picked up a new Nuvi 765T in mid-March. It came with NA 2010.10 and I have held off registering it hoping to see 2010.50 or 2011.10 come out before my 60-day period is up. Since I acquired first satellite sync March 19th, I figure I have until May 15th to be safe. Based on their schedule last year, I would think the next release would be due around the end of this month.

In the meantime, I am watching for any sales on NuMaps subscriptions.

Be careful playing the waiting game. There have been many reported cases where the acquire date did not register correctly or will show a date before you bought the unit. In these cases Garmin uses your purchase invoice or receipt to establish your elgibility window.

Nuvi 2010.10 was released 4/8/09.

So NT2011.10 should be out any time NOW.

If you don't travel much it might not make a big difference other than knowing you have updated to the most recent. But in the Tampa area for instance there have been major changes and every update makes it more closely resemble what the roads look like now. You can be sure there are hundreds or thousands of changes each time.

In addition I have seen many more Junction Views now when traveling. If you don't care about this I understand, but for those that do it makes a difference.

I am in no hurry to do the tedious downloads too. I have not even bought the upgrade package yet...I am at least 3 versions back.

I don't think quarterly releases are worth the install trouble...annual I might by that.

Receipt

I have a receipt from Amazon.com so should they require it I can provide it. I had to send back the first unit I received from them as there were strange marks on the screen (new unit, not refurbished). So I can send them two receipts; one for the original purchase and one for the swap five days later.

As to another post wondering why someone would want the latest update, my interest is in seeing updates I have reported to NAVTEQ implemented. As it stands right now, there is only one map update left that NAVTEQ has implemented but has not yet made to the Garmin maps. That change is at 42.833500428111165N, 77.96511054039001W and involves a major reconfiguration of the curve. The curve was eliminated and the road was moved several hundred feet northwest. When driving that area with the current maps, the GPS will lose its lock on the road and you wind up driving in space. NAVTEQ updated their maps from my report in December and I am waiting for the changes to be implemented by Garmin.

new map

My free map expires may 1st. I have a key for the 2010.40, but if the newer map comes out will I be able to get that instead? Also the mygarmin account shows I downloaded the map but it did not take and I can redownload? I have not done this! Thoughts.....

if you got a key

Jim

if you got a key for the 2010.4 maps and started a download, you will not get the next release. Garmin will state because you have a key for the 2010.4 you either use it or loose it. And yes, you can redownload until the map goes off their servers - but you have to do the initial download within the window given when you got the key.

ɐ‾nsǝɹ Just one click away from the end of the Internet

Re: New Map

The nuMaps Guarantee allows you to download *one* free map update. If you already used your one free map update, you cannot download another different version.

Yes, you can re-download your map update but you need to do so before the download expiration date. Your ability to download the update will expire after 15 days.

Free Update date is negotionable to certain extent.

In most cases if you wait to download your free update and miss the deadline by a few weeks, Garmin will adjust the expiration date when you call customer service. Just tell them you forgot about doing it or thought you still had time. However, don't expect them to give you a newer map version, if you just downloaded your free update and a newer version comes along soon afterwards. They won't do that.

No. You Are Not Alone

I did the update on a new unit (my first) and the three things I noted as out of date did not change.

Two at least 9 months old, the third over a year.

Nor does not having the latest info actually affect my trips, so long as I assume the road signage is up to date. wink

I suspect that I will never update my maps except when buying new units.

Of course, that's a lay opinion to be modified as my experience grows. But perhaps modified to a more extreme "no update" rule as I also got firmware 3.90 replacing 3.80 on my 765T, apparently adding some new bugs. Again, I was a noob who knew not what I did.

Still love the unit.

Why No Update?

I received my brand new 775T from Garmin, the old one died in one week. I went to register it online and I used the webupdater, it said that it would replace what was on my old unit. It updated my software sadly to 3.9. The unit had 3.8 before update. Then it started to download the 2010.4 maps which were released on or around 01/21/2010. I bought my unit on May 3rd.
I have called garmin an asked if I am still able to get my free update? They said no. I said that they (Garmin) sent me a new unit with older maps on it. I know they have many sitting on shelves but when I buy something that is brand new I expect the latest maps to be included in it. I feel that I am losing out on my free update. He told that was the policy, one free update.
I will email Garmin to start a paper trail.

Four updates per year for the life of that GPS or until Garmin no longer has an agreement with NAVTEQ, whichever ends first.

Version 3.9 for the Nuvi 7X5 series is a big problem..cablibration and keyboard issues.. I have returned two 765T to Costco and finally gave up on that series. I got a 1490T which is 100 times better in so many ways compared to the 7X5 series...Personal opinion.... Below is a link where you can read more info and the problems.

I agree. I bought a 765T in March and it has been problematic with crashes and, as mentioned above, pressing one key and having another one clicked. I thought I solved it with a screen recalibration but that started causing other issues. From the diagnostic logs on the device, it appears to be a memory leak in the code.

I have also found the routing, as compared to my C550, to be terrible. The C550 provides much better routing than the 765T. I am not sure if it is part of the overall issues with 3.90 or just a lousy algorithm. I had planned to sell my C550 on eBay but lately I am inclined to keep it (I would sooner dispose of the 765T). If I were traveling into an unknown area, I would trust the C550 more than I would the 765T to give me the best route.

your street pilot

Im with you Aardvark, hold on to your trusty Street pilot and you won't go wrong. It has much better algorithms than the Nuvi series does. And yes it does take a little longer to get a lock, but once it does it is rock solid along with it's firmware and the sound is much better also.

When I go on a trip, so does the c550 and the Nuvi's stay home. It upgrades as easy as any Garmin and run poi file nicely. the Nuvi's I use to putt around with.

Fix issues, why should there be issues to start with?

Garmin has been putting out junk since they started making the Nuvi, with the exception of a few units.
why do the consumers need to be beta testers for Garmin Nuvi series that sometime have faults so bad they have to returned, and there are going to be those that say just unplug the battery shock and I ask why?
Calibration problems why? Way to many model numbers and issues to name here now.

Rather than putting out units faster than I can change my underwear, why not just wait and put out nothing but qaulity units that have no issues at all, no problems no firmware glitches no problems period.

Garmin needs to hire people into it's quality control department and really decent firmware writers. And what they really need to do is revisit Garmin of yesteryear when they built quality GPSr's

By Reducing the size of their return and repair departments, and beefing up the departments mentioned above they would add to their bottom line and make a better product for us all. And just maybe tow the line on pricing of new units or even lower them a bit.

Would you say the attached email I received from Garmin on April 8 is talking out of my hat...If you are running version 3.9 you may want to check your unit again. They have known of this issue since the middle of December and have yet to do anything about it. Your apology is accepted....

Thank you for contacting Garmin International. I would be happy to help you with this issue.

Our sincerest apologies for this issue, as we are aware of this glitch, and we are currently working on a fix. We have not been informed of a date of release, but it is hopefully going to be released within the next week or so.

This is a high-priority update, as we understand that many device's are exhibiting this behavior.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and should you need further assistance, please reply to this email.

Rather than guess, I pulled the ifix value from my 765T's GarminDevice.xml and it translates to March 22, 2010 at 13:38UTC so I have until May 21, 2010 (May 19, 2010 to be safe) at the latest to get the map update. If not April, I hope by mid-May to have the next update. Otherwise, I will take 2010.40 but I would like to see if my closed NAVTEQ report has made it in yet.

Fix issues, why should there be issues to start with?

Because like it or not, it's a computer. You want it to work perfectly, fine. No more firmware updates, no new maps, no access to load your own data, customize it, or make changes.

Then it will work fine, like your microwave oven. Simple code, only does "one" thing.

And yet you don't have nearly the same distaste for your computer? It updates thousands of lines of code every month. And sometimes it comes with a second update the same week, to fix what they broke.

I'm not naysaying you Bob, that you're not right about Garmin making an effort to improve things... but I'd bet you they are working on it AND that if we were content with simpler functionality, no mp3 players, no jpegs, no audio books, etc. etc., we'd have more reliable units.

They're complex because "the public" demands it.
